BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – Iranian Chief of Staff for the Armed Forces Mohammad Bagheri warned that if the United States has “ill will against our country’s security” they would face Iran’s “fiercest reactions,” while speaking from Tehran on Thursday, after the US reportedly deployed missiles to Iraq.

According to the General, the US has been increasing its military activities in Iraq and the Persian Gulf and spreading the news that “they have some intentions against resistance groups in Iraq.”

He went on to say that the attacks on military bases hosting US troops in Iraq have been “a normal reaction by the Iraqi people and resistance forces against US satanic measures,” after assignations of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, an Iraqi leader of Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF, or Hashd al-Shaabi).

On Wednesday, US President Trump wrote in his official Twitter account that if Iran plans “a sneak attack on US troops, Iran will pay a very heavy price.”

The United States is said to have deployed Patriot surface-to-air missiles to Iraq after the US intelligence community reportedly warned Iran was plotting against US forces in the country.

Word of advice, make sure you point the patriot systems the right way, which they won’t because they will point them towards IRAN, but then, the IRAQ military that will conduct the attacks so just like in Saudi Arabia when they were trying to defend the ARAMCO site

How funny he sees the fact that US who were under attack from Iran-backed militias’ rockets and missiles, deployed anti-missiles systems as… a threat to Iran while these are DEFENSE systems. Does he only gets that with such declarations, he looks like an imbecile? “they have some intentions against [Iran-backed] “resistance” groups in Iraq” that actually shoot rockets and missiles on US bases? How funny! Does this idiot think that the DoD will quietly let these slaughter GI’s like lambs? In fact, if USA was strictly applying the Hague Convention (Int’l law of war), any attack by Iran’s proxies on… Read more »

Does he only gets that with such declarations, he looks like an imbecile?” And you call yourself a former military man with deep knowledge of strategic planning right ? Sorry I almost forgot you were such a liar for a moment, silly me :p Now since when is such deployment a “defensive” move when it comes integrated within a much larger package consisting of massive troops redeployment and repositionning… Read more »

Does he only gets that with such declarations, he looks like an imbecile?” Funny name-calling considering the epic level of nonsense you dropped in return. Since when is such deployment a “defensive” move when it comes integrated within a much larger package consisting of : -Massive troops repositionning in concentrated and better-defended bases on Iraqi soil. -Deployment of TWO carrier fleet coming around the PG lately close to Iranian… Read more »
